According to the Detroit News:
A government-imposed tax hike, Akerson believes, will prompt more people to buy small cars and do more good for the environment than forcing automakers to comply with higher gas-mileage standards.Translation: "If we're going to be forced to build cars we can't sell. Consumers should be forced to buy them."
GE already accomplished this with CFLs, so why not give it a try?
Anybody else see a problem with Government Motors petitioning the government for a tax hike?
